The network will also screen the season one finale of their upcoming series “The Son,” based on the novel by Philipp Meyer, with attending cast and creatives to be announced at a later date.

In addition, Mark Duplass will join ATX for a Q&A and sneak peek screening of his new HBO comedy “Room 104,” which he created and executive produces with his brother Jay Duplass. “Girls” will also celebrate its final season with a panel featuring vice president of HBO programming Kathleen McCaffrey; casting director Jennifer Euston; and cast members Alex Karpovsky and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
